Name the meeting, then enter the date and time. If scheduling a meeting for the same day, you may check the option to schedule "Now", but for the best experience, we suggest scheduling by at least 5-10 minutes in the future. Moderators can also enter meetings 10 minutes early to get started before others arrive.


Depending on your organization's membership, your maximum number of users and meeting time duration may vary. You can also share up to 10 simultaneous webcams.


Depending on your organization's membership with Bongo, you may or may not have the options highlighted in gray in the image above. If you do have these options, expand the button below to learn more.

Additional Meeting Options

Start record automatically: Select this option if you want the meeting to begin recording as soon as the meeting moderator enters the meeting room. If you record your meeting, you will be able to access your attendance log afterward. 

Publish recorded meeting: Select this option if you want the attendees to be able to review the recording after the meeting has ended. 

Allow external participants: Select this option if you want to invite outside participants (such as a guest speaker or an interviewee) to the meeting.

Invite entire class:  This option allows a meeting to be scheduled for the entire class without having to invite all users in the course and having to go back and invite more users who join the class later.

Repeat weekly for: To schedule your meeting for the same time for consecutive weeks, select between 2-15 weeks. This will create 1 meeting per week, including the current meeting.
